4 Consideration of Objections to an Advertised Proposal to Introduce a Residents Priority Parking Area on the Danesmead Estate pdf icon PDF 162 KB

To report representations received to the advertised proposal to introduce a Residents’ Priority Parking Area on the Danesmead Close Estate, and to determine what action is appropriate from the options given.

 

 

 

Additional documents:

Decision:

Resolved:  That Option 4 be approved: to implement an amendment to the Traffic Regulation Order to introduce a new residents priority parking area on the Danesmead estate to operate from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (to be allocated the zone number R63), to be implemented with a lesser restriction than advertised to give 30 minute parking for non-permit holders. This is subject to obtaining authorisation from the Department of Transport (DfT) for the required regulatory signage.

 

Reason:     To progress the majority views of the residents consulted by removing long term non residential parking but still allowing parents/carers of York Steiner School the requested time limit for pick up and drop off and allow short term customer parking for the business outlets.

 

Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which set out the representations received to the advertised proposal to introduce a Residents’ Priority Parking Area on the Danesmead Close Estate in order to determine what action was appropriate from the five options detailed in the report.

 

The Executive Member acknowledged that increasing the waiting time for non-permit holders from 10 minutes to either 30 minutes or 3 hours would require authorisation being obtained from the Department for Transport and this could delay implementation of the scheme for a further 8 weeks.

The Executive Member noted that the Executive were due to consider a report in August seeking agreement for a piece of land at Danesgate school, currently in education remit, to become adopted highway and, if this occurred, the proposed Fulford Cross residents parking scheme could progress to advertisement.  Should the land remain in Education remit, officers would report back to the Executive Member at that time.  Officers advised that the Executive Member could make a decision today on the Danesmead Estate scheme but ask that both Danesmead and Fulford Cross schemes be implemented together, although they advised that this could potentially delay implication of the Danesmead scheme

In relation to concerns raised by the speaker in relation to displacement parking on Broadway West, the Executive Member acknowledged that normal procedure allowed neighbouring streets, within 18 months of implementation of a   residents parking scheme in an adjoining street to petition the council for additional consultation.  If this occurred the neighbouring street would bypass the waiting list and consultation  for a scheme would take place as soon as resources allowed.

Having considered the five options presented in the report and taking into account the original request for a residents parking scheme, the consultation responses, the small number of representations received in objection to the proposal, the views presented by speakers including the impact on the Steiner School of the 10 minute waiting time, the Executive Member expressed his support for option 4. He felt that this would respond to residents’ desire for a scheme but would address the school’s request for a longer waiting time to drop offs while still being very similar to what residents had been consulted on.

Resolved:  That Option 4 be approved: to implement an amendment to the Traffic Regulation Order to introduce a new residents priority parking area on the Danesmead estate to operate from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (to be allocated the zone number R63), to be implemented with a lesser restriction than advertised to give 30 minute parking for non-permit holders. This is subject to obtaining authorisation from the Department of Transport (DfT) for the required regulatory signage.
